Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2007 Barolo Brunate is a stunner. Layers of dark fruit, mocha, chocolate, menthol, pine and spices emerge reluctantly from an inward, mysterious Barolo that captures the essence of one of Piedmont's greatest sites. Structurally, it remains a powerhouse, with massive tannins, great body and fabulous length. The Brunate is one of the most improved wines at Vietti over the last few years, and is a huge success in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032.

Intense aromas of sliced plums, with white truffle undertones. Full bodied, with big velvety tannins and a beautiful balance of fruit and acidity. This goes on for minutes on the palate. A glorious young Barolo. Try it after 2014.

James Suckling | 97 JS
This enticing red kicks off with sweet cherry, berry, spice and pepper aromas and flavors, picking up wild underbrush and smoky, mineral elements. The sinewy tannins keep this all together, leading to a fresh, lively finish. Best from 2015 through 2032. 255 cases made.

Wine Spectator | 95 WS
Vietti's iconic Barolo from the Brunate cru deserves a special spot in your cellar collection. The wine delivers power and heft thanks to ideal vineyard conditions in 2007. It also exhibits the vintner's unique style, in which oak tones are set against the delicate aromas associated with quality Nebbiolo.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.
Producer Vietti: Vietti has been producing mouth-watering wines since the start of the 20th century, although its presence was known even before that. They're often credited as the winery that popularized the Arneis grape varietal, which now sees representation even in the United States. Piemonte's cultural footprint wouldn't be the same without the inclusion of Vietti, a fact that gets proven each year, thanks to the winery's astounding consistency. No matter what your taste in wine is, there's a Vietti out there that could spark the flame of your imagination. Some prefer the beautifully dry, flower-infused, lemon-kissed Arneis, while others dream about Vietti's deep, potent Dolcetto d'Alba and its enchanting cocktail of lush berry aromatics. Join us on a journey of discovery as we unearth the secrets behind Vietti's enormous success.

Region Piedmont: Italian culture values the unbreakable bond we share with family and very few things showcase that connection quite like a shared meal. Therefore, it's only natural that wine would also take its place as an important cultural aspect. Fine Italian produce always goes well with a variety of dishes, and that makes these wines an incredibly popular choice among wine enthusiasts who appreciate a good get-together. The foothills of the Alps help define this region's significantly colder, continental winter climate, but during the summer, the conditions are similar to the region of Burgundy. Flavor-wise, this region has a mind-boggling variety to offer. Not only is there a healthy selection of approved grapes to work with, but the soil often varies from estate to estate, letting every wine stand out. Expect to encounter powerful notes of rose petal flavor, spices, cherries, dried herbs, anise, and many more. Every bottle has a story to tell. Those of you with a tendency to hoard and collect fine wines will be especially intrigued, as Piedmont wines tend to mature extremely well, developing nuance and becoming more and more delicious as time goes on.
Type of Wine Barolo: Barolo have cemented their spot as one of Italy's most famous and desirable achievements, decorating the cellars of every serious wine collector. While the grape they're made from is rather dark and dusty-looking, the elixir that comes from this varietal is an almost crystal clear, light red, like a pair of seductive lips glistening in the candlelight.
